BLURB:   
Enter a decadent sensual world where gorgeous alpha males are pleasure slaves committed to fulfilling a woman's every desire. At the elite Honey club, no boundary will be left untested, and one's darkest desires will become a sensual reality.

Olivier isn’t sure what he’s gotten himself into when he joins the Honey Club, only that a dark part of him craves the lifestyle offered by this secret, exclusive club.

When Amèlie invites Olivier to surrender, she pushes him to explore his deepest desires as a submissive. As they grow closer and find themselves falling harder than either of them anticipated, the truth about Olivier’s past could threaten the budding relationship they both long for.

Gripping and seductive, The Deep End is the first book in a sensational new series from bestselling author Kristen Ashley.

At first, I read this book without 'consulting' a few of my favorite reviewers. But since this is Kristen Ashley, I trooped through and read it anyway. Despite a few times that my face felt like combusting, it was fine. What wasn't fine for me? I felt like I lost a bit of what Kristen makes her books so...her. And then I read the reviews. DNF everywhere. I know where it went wrong, but I'm such a trooper (I know, I know) and I gave it five stars initially. I reread it and I lost the one star...

It was not champagne she was looking for. It was that coveted, priceless, smooth, deep, incomparable burn of the finest scotch whisky.

BLURB:   
In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s gripping new novel, a young woman comes home to reclaim her life—even as a murderer plots to end it. . .

It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown . . . since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.

First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now . . . because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.

But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.

This is Jennifer's first thriller book that I tried. I loved her Wait for Me and Lux series, although I kinda fell through and didn't manage to finish them yet. So I decided to try another of her stand-alone.

Being with Cole had made me feel like I was on the edge of a cliff, more than willing to fall off. I'd never felt anything like that again. Not even a smidgen.

Ten years ago, Sasha Keaton left her hometown when she survived a serial killer, survived something that a young woman should never have endured. A little broken and traumatized, she decided to move away from her family and her friends. And from her boyfriend, Cole Landish. Now twenty nine, she moves back into town to inherit her family inn and lives with her Mom. She doesn't quite forget what had happened, but now she can cope. Her homecoming brings Cole back on her doorstep, and also attention that she doesn't want from anyone else.
